The jaguar is considered the 2nd hardest cat to see in its natural habitat after the snow leopard.
Among the most interesting features they present are:
- Considered the king of the South American tropics.
- It is the feline with the most powerful bite even stronger than that of the lion.
- In its natural habitat, just moving half a meter it disappears into the tangle of the jungle.
- It is said that he can jump to a height of approximately 6 meters
- It occupies the top of the food chain after humans.
- Its habitat ranges from part of Argentina to northern Mexico.
- It has a very wide territory of domain even beyond 100 hectares.
- These and other characteristics make observing the jaguar in its natural state not very easy.
At Jungle Reps and Expeditions we work with information that has been provided by biologists and park rangers who have been studying for more than 15 years.
This information is only available to NGOs to prevent their hunting and conserve their habitat.
Jungle Reps and Expeditions we have the places where they have been observed many times feeding and hunting.
We use the techniques that researchers use. We do not guarantee their sighting but we do go to the places where they were seen most frequently.
These places are not visited by other tourism companies due to their remoteness and lack of knowledge.
Our guides are people who were born and raised in these protected areas, making the experience as original as possible.
Main features of this program:
Minimum length of stay
07 days and the more days the better.
Carefully selected places for this activity. Not all guides or tourism companies access these places.
Type of excursion
Observation posts will be made in strategic places. The techniques were acquired from park rangers, biologists, and these techniques were also provided by conservation foundations that have been in the field for many years.
We will also use canoes that do not use engines that alter the habitat.
Our staff are people who were born and raised in the area so these places are very familiar to them.
We take all our supplies from the cities of Nauta and Iquitos. Inputs such as fruits, vegetables, bottled purified water.
We recommend bringing your personal medicines. Likewise, Jungle Reps and Expeditions provides a first aid kit that contains basic medicines and antivenom, which in more than 20 years of experience we never use but we are ready for any event that may be necessary.
Our guides have first aid courses as well as cardio pulmonary resuscitation.
Where we will sleep
Following the rules of the protected areas we will sleep in very well equipped tents. The tents will be set up in places that are intended for observation.
How we will cook
If you have any food restriction, communicate at the time of booking the program. We will cook with gas since the use of firewood forms smoke, altering the habitat and making our presence visible.
How much will we walk
The observations of this feline were mostly from the river so we are going to walk a little.
